    Hi guys I recently purchased two brand new 8000 MAH 50C Ovonic batteries. I also went ahead a got me a brand new Lectron Pro balance charger as well. once I'm home I charged both Batteries and @ full charge on battery #1 i got 12.6v and the same for Battery #1.Battery cell's #1 #2 and #3 all read 4.20.Battery #2 readings where the same @full charge. Now Battery #1flight time 6min 13sec battery #2 5min32sec. After recharging both batteries both batteries gave great voltages on each cell so i took them flew each of them and battery#1fight time till first warning was 6min 42sec battery#2 5min42sec. Is there anything i can do to improve my flight time or do I need to return them PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!:(:(:(

    Hello ,
    Sorry for my English, you bought Ovonic 8000mah 3s 50c lipo batteries and you find yourself with little autonomy, in fact your battery has a large discharge capacity and discharges quickly, it is not made to fly with the Q500 which has 8C batteries, this is what allows you to fly for a long time.
    With the Ovonics the Q500 is very nervous and fast, more than usual compared to an original battery or of the same specification.

    The C value is the maximum safe continuous discharge capacity of your battery. For example, on the battery above, 50C means you can discharge the battery to a power of up to 50 times the battery capacity continuously or 6000 mAh 50C = 6A x 50 = 300A max continuous discharge.

    even if the welds of your connectors are not pretty, that's not what will reduce the autonomy.
    The main thing is to have a battery in the original specifications and to break them in well.
    I hope it was useful to you, good flight!
